‘Detroit’ Tops Limited Openers, Along With ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ and ‘Menashe’

30 July 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a strong group of limited releases for a July weekend: Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit,” “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” and the Yiddish-language “Menashe” all performed well, as did Sony Pictures Classics’ “Bigsby Bear.”


Detroit (Annapurna) – Metacritic: 86

$365,455 in 20 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $18,273

Kathryn Bigelow’s first film since “Zero Dark Thirty” is the first released by Megan Ellison’s production company through its own distributor. With reviews nearly as strong as “Zero” and “The Hurt Locker” but shifting to the home front in this recounting of the Detroit riots exactly 50 years ago, this opened in 10 markets ahead of its wide release this Friday. This is a tough subject, however well received, and Annapurna and its team has a challenge opening this outside of the festival/awards season and finding a wide swath of African-American and other upscale audiences.

'Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk': Film Review

28 July 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Take this as a sign of the audience for whom Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk is intended: Corbett Redford's documentary, whose genre of choice favors songs in the two-minute zone, runs for over two and a half hours. And even at that length, it contains next to no substantive performance footage, or even extended audio clips. Such is its attention span for interviews with those who created and thrived in this Diy microcosm, a scene that — whatever you think of its most visible export, Green Day — clearly helped change the idea of what punk could mean »

Green Day Defends Performing Festival Set Shortly After Acrobat's Death: 'We Are Not Heartless People'

9 July 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The members of Green Day are defending themselves against accusations of insensitivity after performing a set at the Mad Cool Festival in Spain immediately following a fatal on-stage accident that left a Spanish acrobat dead.

The tragic mishap occurred on Friday during a performance featuring acrobat Pedro Aunion Monroy, who was performing an aerial stunt in front of the massive crowd. The performance went wrong and, despite safety precautions, Monroy fell more than 100 feet to the ground.

The 42-year-old entertainer was attended to by paramedics, but soon succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the fall.

After a short delay, Green Day, who were the nights' headliners, took the stage and performed their set as planned. However, the band has released a statement claiming that they weren't informed of Monroy's death until after their performance had ended.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong Speaks Out About Performing After Acrobat's Death

9 July 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong says his band "most likely" would not have performed at the Mad Cool Festival in Madrid had they been informed that an acrobat had fallen to his death at the venue just before the group's set. Pedro Aunion Monroy, 42, was performing a stunt in which he was suspended in a cage by a harness hanging from a crane. He fell from a height of around 100 feet and was pronounced dead after paramedics were unable to revive him. Green Day performed their set afterwards as scheduled, then revealed on Twitter that they learned about the accident only after they had finished, calling the acrobat a "brave artist."
